Joseph WOODRUFF

One source indicate parents were John Woodruff and Mary Winchell.  This is unlikely, however, as the source also indicates Joseph died in 1732.  Most likely the above cited source has the wrong Joseph.

Woodruff, 54 "In particular that when Joseph Woodruff, one of Your Majesty's petitioners' ancestors, by Writ of Error, brought this cause before the Governor and Council of this Province in the fourth year of Your Majesty's late Royal Father (1718), in oreder to obtain a judgement . . ." signed by "Samuel, Samuel Jr. Thomas, Thomas Jr., Cooper, Abner, Robert, Nathaniel, Jacob, Daniel, Abraham, John, John 5th, Joseph, Hezekiah, Jonathan, David, Isaac, Ezekiel, Tim. Jr, Isaac Jr, Jeremiah." Of these Thomas and Hezekiah certainly, and several of the others, probably, were children and descendants of Joseph of Westfield."

Woodruff, 56 "January 15, 1742, that 'Joseph Woodruff, Jr., of the Burrough of Elizabeth,' 'Being sickly and weakly in Body' made his will, and on Feb'y 2d he died.

Nelson Woodruff & (1)Irmina & (2)Junie Warner Family
The Woodruff family history is connected to many of the early Eastern families histories. We will begin with the earliest proven histories of Nelson and Junie Warner Woodruff. We learn of this couple from the death certificate of their son, Waite Warner Woodruff. According to this certificate we learn that Junie Warner was of "York State" (New York) and that Nelson was from Vermont. It is now believed that Junie may have been signed as Waite's mother merely because she was Nelson's wife at the time of Waite's death. Waite, was born in 1838. It is not known if he had any brothers or sisters. However, it can be assumed that his parents would have been, at least, in their late teens or early twenties, putting the dates somewhere between 1818-1825. The Erie Canal was completed about 1825, and in the following years many New Yorkers migrated to the mid-west via the canal.
Above is how these pages started, but thanks to our new found cousin Sharon we now have history and a connection for our Nelson Woodruff family. It is not all set in stone, but the line goes up from Nelson to the earliest possible person, Bryan Woodrove of 1298. This is many more generations than we had ever hoped to find. According to records, Nelson was born 1815 in Vermont. He married (1) Irmina Warner. She was born about 1808 in Vermont. He married also (2)Junie Warner. She was born about 1811 in Vermont. On the 1850 census in Louisville, St. Lawrence Co., New York, page 230, household #6 there is this entry,


Nelson Woodruff, age 35, shoemaker, born VT
Irmina, age 42, born VT
Ruth, age 13, born NY
Wait W., age 11, born NY (our gg grandfather)
Amos, age 9, born NY (Sharon's gg grandfather)
Crosby, age 5, born NY
Truman A., age 5 months, born NY
Later, in 1880, in Hagar, Berrien Co., MI., page 179A there are these entries:

Nelson Woodruff, age 65, farmer, born VT, parents B. CT. and his wife "Junie" age 69, born VT, father born VT, mother born Canada. Nelson is listed as a farmer.

Children of Nelson Woodruff and Irmina Warner are:

Amos Woodruff, b. November 11, 1840, Vermont;d.July 22, 1899, Coloma,MI
Ruth A. Woodruff, b. 1836, New York
Crosby Woodruff, b. 1844, New York
Truman A. Woodruff, b. 1850, New York
Wait W. Woodruff, b. December 15, 1838, New York
We know that two branches of the Woodruff family in England settled in the United States. One branch settled in Long Island, N.Y., eventually moving to New Jersey and, later, further south to the Carolinas, and Georgia. (One of the Woodruff's was a long-time president of the Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta) Still later, members of the southern branch of the Woodruff family migrated to Missouri.

The other branch of the Woodruff family settled in Connecticut. If remembered correctly, the head of this branch was one of the original "proprietors" of Hartford. Some of his descendants eventually moved to Litchfield in western Connecticut, where Ethan Allen, of "Green Mountain Boys" fame, and his cousin, Seth Warner, also lived. There is a strong suspicion that our Wodruff ancestor probably followed Allen and Warner to Vermont prior to the Revolutionary War as one of what became the "Green Mountain Boyss" But that gives a gap of some 40 to 50 years between the Woodruff's and Warner's known to be in Litchfield, and our Vermonter, Nelson Woodruff, and his "York State" wife, Junie Warner.

We know now more of their story. It is suspected, now that we know the information on Nelson's family, that Junie was a second wife to Nelson and possibly the sister of Irmina. Their life may have been similar to their son's, Wait, in that he married Ellen Colegrove and raised their family and after her death, Wait married Ellen's sister Jane.

Per Salterr@aol.com:
"Joseph moved to Essex Co, M. J. and had 13 children. Descendants of Joseph and Hanna are known as the 'Westfield Woodruff of New Jersey'.

"Per Audrey Lee Woodruff's Notes:
"Joseph Woodruff was born in 1676 in Southampton, Long Island.His tombstone in Westfield, N.J. reads, 'departed this life 2 Feb. anno domini 1741-2 in the 65th year of age.'

(Frances E. Woodruff. p. 49)

""Joseph and Hannah, believed newly married, migrated to Essex County, New Jersey and settled 100 acres of land, lot no. 148, which lay across Raway river at a greatbend a mile below stream from Crane's ford' (Now Cranford), and 3 miles s.e. of town of Westfield.

Frances E. Woodruff writes, 'they lived on the border of civilization...in 1665 land sold 10 acres for a penny....wolves and Indian in abundance...took muskets to church.' Married life was one long anxiety, their land was questioned in 1718 and the case was written up in court records. Joseph and Hannah were the parents of thirteen children.""15 Jan. 1742, Joseph Woodruff, Jr. (due to an older cousin of the same name) of Borough Elizabeth,made his will and died 2 Feb. of the same year. He named his wife, Hannah, executor, along with his son, Thomas Woodruff, and friend, William Miller. To his widow he left 'the best room in my dwelling house, one third of improvements of all my land, and one third of all movable estate'. To heirs who already received their portions, John, Jonathan, William, Samuel and Abilagil Gold (believed the oldest child) five shillings each. Between Thomas and Hezekiah, the plantation on which he lived, adjoining west side of Rahaway River and two other pieces of Trimby Neck. To Nathaniel, the house and land bought of Joseph Bird. to Isaac, a piece on salt meadow. To Benjamin, a negro boy and 40 lbs. to daughters, Sarah and Joanna, 16 lbs. each. Indeed he provided well for his family. These Woodruffs are known as the 'Westfield Woodruff's of New Jersey.'"
